New Zealand rescuers save six stranded whales

It is thought the humpback whale may have died in a separate incident and washed up by coincidence

A pilot flying a private plane over Croajingolong National Park in Victoria state spotted 27 pilot whales and one humpback stranded on the beach Tuesday afternoon.

Three wildlife experts that were flown in by helicopter found one dead humback whale and 23 dead pilot whales.

More than 140 pilot whales have died after they stranded themselves on a remote beach on Rakiura/Stewart Island in New Zealand over the weekend.

"We'll have some people that can carry out euthanasia", said Mr Turner, who said he had never seen a beaching of this scale in 32 years with the department.

"Sadly, the likelihood of being able to successfully re-float the remaining whales was extremely low", said Ren Leppens, the Department of Conservation's operations manager on Stewart Island.

Department of Conservation spokeswoman Abigail Monteith said the hard decision had been made to euthanase the five pygmy whales.

Moreover, the departments of conservation have contacted the local indigenous population so as to discuss the next steps after the incident even though the rotten carcasses may be left on the beach for nature to take its course.

Half of them were dead, the other was impossible to save, in this connection employees of the Department of conservation of New Zealand made the decision to euthanize them.

"Desperately we grabbed their tails and pushed and yelled, before we got hammered by them thrashing around", she wrote on Instagram.

Giving an hour by hour update of efforts to save the pygmy killer whales that had been found floundering on Ninety Mile Beach, the DoC told how it was working with volunteers from Project Jonah New Zealand and Whale-Rescue along with members of the public to save the stricken marine mammals. It could also be a combination of factors that causes the animals to strand, but those reasons remain unknown.
